does anyone around here plays magic? because I have been collecting for about 4 years now, and I want to know if anyone around here plays it.

and for those of you which are collecting for for a decent amount of time: what deck do you have?

I started playing Magic the Gathering around 1995 and quit buying cards around 2000 - 2001. The game started to get stale for me at that point, all i kept seeing was 1-3 turn kill combos. I used to play a black/artifact deck that was ment for fun more than winning.

You know, a new version is out, and the idea is all-colors decks and machine decks (infinite combo decks).
I have a nice red/black/blue/artifact deck, and it is very good. by the way, does anyone here has the card "wrath of god"?

Maybe that is "sword of kaldra"? gives +5 +5?
well I got the helm of kaldra lately, and the shield, but the sword is missing. still, i never guessed that they were so many exe-collectors here.

I used to play MTG like...when I was in 5th grade (currently going into my Senior year of highschool). I never really was good or anything, I just had a ton of cards (they're still around here somewhere). I remember I had some dragon card that was like 7/7 and I was like ":O!! ULTIMATE :O!!!"

too bad that everyone that says he knows what magic is, also says he quited a brazillion years ago.

partly related: a few hours ago, i had a magic spree with my friend, which ended up 8 wins 0 losses for me.

Yeah, i play quite avidly. Currently have 15 built decks, the best of which wins through an infinite combo sequence involving mind over matter, and tolarian academy, along with a lot of card draw and combo. I've also got good sliver, enchantress, and aggro-red decks. As for the sword thing, Worldslayer is what Decline was talking about, completly seperate from Sword of Kaldra.

I used to play as well, I only played it for a few months with my friend. It was fun, but I wouldn't buy any cards myself, I didn't think it was THAT great.

Like Mr. S, I used to play Magic in the 5th grade and a bit more into the 6th grade. I used to purchase cards a lot, but that was back in '95/'96. I haven't bought a pack since. I still, occasionally, play a game or two with one of my buddies, since they, for the most part, use older decks, too.

Other than that...can't say I've done much with MTG since then.

i won the nottingham championships a while back, still got the plaque and a box of booster packs, reason i won was because we could "redesign" our decks to our opponents, and all the tits i fought were stubborn and never changed there "perfect decks", in the finals, was quite impressive, he got a crapload of creatures straight up after 3 turns while i was getting nothing but swamps, then while he was still waiting for his summoning sickness to go from his 12/12 card i couldnt remember, and a couple of other goodys he just played, i pulled out the perish card, it destroys all forest cards in play for both players and cannot be regenerated, since i didnt have any in my deck at all, all his good creatures were pwned, and over the next three turns, i managed to pull out a bog elemental, skeletal croc and and enslaved horror, once played, his bad luck showed with no creatures for 5 turns, and died with no comeback, oh poor him, seemed dead upset, teach him to not change his "perfect" deck through the tourny =D

I got a couple decks not much, my cousin and his friends play and he got me into it. I have a deck that is Green mostly and it basically makes all enemy units kill themselves by blocking 1 of my units that has some hammer that instantly destroys both attacking and blocking creatures. I'm kinda a noob though as you can tell.

I'm a senior in High School. I have one deck, a blue/artifact deck (Darksteel's new modular feature). I haven't played in months and stopped collecting a month after I started, not interested in blowing anymore money, I still play when I can though.
